Little City

Little City is dedicated to serving children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities by providing the best options and opportunities to live safely, learn continuously, explore creatively and work productively throughout their lifetime. By inspiring, advocating and pursuing success with passion and purpose, lives are changed through hope, happiness, and optimism. We assist hundreds of children and adults along with their families throughout the Chicago area by providing education, training, skills and encouragement. Our goal is to make tomorrow better than today by continually making great strides to further enrich the lives of those we serve and help them flourish.
